    Solid GE Product

    We replaced a LG french door that died after 12 years of good service. Although the french door had 1 cubic ft more of space, the GE side by side has the space more efficiently arranged so we actually have more usable space. This new unit is SUPER quiet,you only hear it when it drops ice. The energy efficiency is superb @ 77.00 dollars in electricity a year to run. Temperatures are uniform through out the interior. Ice cream in freezer side is rock hard( how I like it). The thru the door ice and water work great. I read some reviews on other products of ice spewing from the dispenser,this is not the case with the GE. The doors will not stay open on their own, they close under their own design if not fully shut. It has an alarm function but it has never gone off as the doors shut themselves if slightly ajar. Unless you fully open the doors, they want to close. I checked consumer reports before purchasing and inspected the unit at the store prior to delivery. The Geek squad delivered and installed the unit right at the scheduled time. The install crew was very careful and polite,in and out in less than a hour. We are all very Happy with this product. I most definitely recommend this product to any one looking for a new refrigerator. It will not disappoint.

    Definitely a downgrade from the Profile line

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    This refrigerator replaced a GE Profile 29 Cu Ft that died before I had it 5 years! (SO glad I bought the BB extended warranty!) I got this model basically by default, as it is becoming increasingly difficult to find any black appliances of ANY brand...& I didn't want to go thru replacing my black stove & dishwasher to boot, as they are not that old While I didn't care or want a bunch of bells & whistles on my fridge, I DO expect to get some basic functionality...some of which this model is lacking & which I was already aware of. (again, was trying to keep it matched w/rest of my appliances for now) - While not the noisiest fridge I've heard in my life, it's definitely NOT the quietest, & certainly NOT as quiet as the Profile I had. While it's not annoying to me, I can overhear it in my adjacent living room. - The black model is definitely susceptible to fingerprints; I'm the only person here, but might want to consider this for your own family's needs. - While the specs say this has LED lighting, you'd never know it by seeing how much space they take up inside, as well as it's kind of poorly lit overall. The freezer ONLY has 1 light & the fridge only has 2; the worst part is the top light in the fridge, which takes up a LOT of room in the center top; it's almost like someone mounted a lighting fixture on the inside ceiling AFTER the fridge was made; VERY poor design! - Only 2 glass shelves & 2 slide-out baskets in the freezer; it's like they were thinking everyone needs 1 entire basket for REALLY, REALLY tall items. (luckily I kept the baskets out of the old freezer & put 1 in this new one, which fits perfectly & gives me 1 more basket of space; you could probably order one from GE) On the plus side, the ice & water dispensers & filter work well & seems to pump out ice in a reasonable time. The fridge shelves pull out & have several height adjustments & does have a meat/cheese drawer. (amazed at other fridges in this price point that do NOT have one these days) For the money, this refrigerator will do for me; your YMMV.

    Unhappy customer


    GES25HSHBSS I bought this refrigerator model in July 2016. April 2017 we noticed a foul odor coming from the freezer section. There was no rot food or anything that would cause the odor. We removed all the shelves and baskets, cleaned with baking soda and water and placed 4 dishes with baking soda inside but after a few days the smell was back. We called GE Customer Service when was told to do what I had already done but did it again anyway. Smell still there. Called Ge Customer Service again. They sent a technician, from an authorized service shop in my area, who confirmed the problem but after spending about one hour checking the appliance inside and out, could not find the source of the problem. The technician told us that there was nothing he could do to help and was sending a report to GE. A few days went by whithout hearing from GE or technician. I called GE when was told that they haven’t received anything from the shop. Several times I try to contact the service shop but there no answer or return calls. Contact GE Customer service again and after several days waiting for calls back and answer to my emails to the GE rep (at this point I am very frustrated with GE’s lack of action) I was told that there was nothing they could or would do because the appliance was working. Because the possibility of food contamination I moved everything to an old fridge in the basement Clearly the problem is with the appliance but now I have to spend another $1,400.00 on a new refrigerator. Thanks GE

    Had to get the stainless

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    I see a lot of people rating the product based off of their experience buying it. This review is about the actual fridge. Quick background of my purchase: I spent 2 weeks searching all of the websites and businesses selling fridges and compared everything I could. This fridge had the best everything when compared to others within a couple hundred bucks. The white fridge came with a cracked kick plate and cut waterline. I declined delivery and they took it back. Best Buy said they wouldn't have another one for at least 2 months and I needed one immediately so I got the stainless. Best Buy managers in store were helpful and understanding so they even gave me it for the same price as the white. Anyway, once it was set up, everything started working great. The doors are spacious and the slide out shelves are great. I really like how bright the fridge is and how quiet it runs. The water and ice taste clean, unlike my previous Samsung side by side. When the ice maker is filling with water for the next batch, you can definitely hear it. Everything else is pretty quiet. The fridge has plenty of storage and the freezer could have more, but the ice maker is on the top shelf. A small turn off, but I knew it was there going in. All in all, I'm happy with the fridge and ample storage.

    After reading many reviews from various websites, with the majority of reviews stating that it was loud when making ice or that it made loud noises when cooling, I have to disagree. When I am in the kitchen, I cannot tell if it's on and when the ice spills into the container below, well, it's ice cubes falling into the container! It's going to make noise. The day that refrigerator was delivered was not the day that it was installed and that is due to the fact that valve on the water line (wall side) was corroded. More than likely if it was shut off, the valve would have ruptured and water would be all over the kitchen floor. So make sure before the refrigerator is delivered that the valve is in good condition. One last thing, the refrigerator was wrapped in plastic as well as the doors and when pulling the plastic covering off, the plastic was perforated on one end of the doors but not the other. So on the left hand side we have a very jagged edge of plastic covering showing and the right hand side no plastic covering at all. My wife is unhappy, which means that I will be using a very sharp razor to cut away the bits of plastic covering. Not what I want to do, at all, with my time. If anyone has any tips, I would appreciate it. One last thing, the top of the refrigerator is tapered to the front, make sure you have at least 1/2 inch more to slide the unit into or it won't fit. For some reason, the sales people don't tell you this teeny bit of info.

    Good refrigerator. Adjusting from a 3-door.

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

    This is a good refrigerator. We upgraded/changed from our 16 yr old 3-door model. Our old model only had filtered water that was accessed from the inside so moving to this model where you can get a glass of water and now ice (crushed or cubed) from the outside of the door is great. The difficult adjustment is moving from having a wide open space that 3-door models offer in the cooling area to the narrow, deep space that 2-door models have. Sometimes it's difficult to see or find something that gets pushed to the back which could lead to wasted food because you couldn't see it. The freezer side is a trade off. It's narrow and deep allowing us to find things easier and much better than searching through a drawer of frozen items much like searching through a sock drawer. Overall, a purchase we're happy with.

    Overall very efficient and great room!

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    This is exactly what I wanted. I love the slate color. The size of the refrigerator is great for a side by side. Usually it's tough to put things in the freezer side however GE has done a great job making sure that several family sized items can fit in the freezer at the same time. The refrigerator side is great too. I thought I would hate the door alarm but now I love it. I never realized how many times I didn't shut the door completely. I guess it's good to learn new habits if it saves you money. The down fall to the finish is that it can be easily scratched. The installers scratched two areas on the exterior doors but the finish does hide it well. I don't have kids and now very careful about the type of magnets I put on the fridge. Someone on these sites suggested painting a clear coating of appliance paint? While I don't know what that is, I may look into it to prolong the life of the refrigerator and the beauty of it because overall I'm extremely happy with the appliance.

    Love the fridge


    I have had the fridge for about 2 months. The slate finish is beautiful. I have no issue at all with fingerprints. It is quiet and so efficient I have saved $12 - $15 /month on my electric bill. Everything works perfectly. The delivery went very smoothly and the fridge was in perfect condition. The only slight blip was that I had anticipated that the delivery men would attach the water line and push the fridge into place. When they got here, they said they could not attach the waterline because the one I had just bought and attached to the water source the night before was plastic, not metal. There was nothing online when I ordered about the fact that a metal line was required in order to have the fridge installed. Wasn't a big deal since my boyfriend installs kitchens, but it should be noted on the website (it is noted on the pages for dishwashers). There are wheels on all four corners, and they level. It moves very easily. I also really like that the haul away of the old one was free. Most other places charge up to $25.
